Just like Chicken and duck eggs come in a WIDE variety of colors, so does beeswax. I love my chickens, I love their eggs, and I love this perfect egg candle. It pairs well with the larger detailed crochet egg, floral egg and carved egg candles we sell. It burns well and even, fits in an egg carton perfectly and is about 2 ounces of wax. It measures about 2.5x1.5 or....the size of a beautiful prized egg from your backyard chickens.
